GOD IS WITH US

GOD IS WITH US

Genesis 39:2 (NKJV) The LORD was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

When God is with us, or for us, how can we be anything but blessed?  Here we see an Old Testament man who lived under the blessings of God, and because he did what the Word says, the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man.

What is true success?  If we look at this verse, we see that Joseph was a slave living under the roof of a man named Potiphar.  Potiphar was an officer of Pharaoh, a captain of the guard, and an Egyptian.  Well, how can you be a slave and still be successful?  The answer here is that “God was with him.”

This is the key to true success: God being with us.  It is being loved by God, our Father, and knowing that He is not only with us, but in us.  He also promised us that He would never leave us or forsake us.  That word never means never!  Some might say, “Well, I do not know about that.  I believe that God leaves us when we sin.”  If that were true, then His love would be conditional.  In fact, then none of us would have God, because we all have sinned and fall short of His glory.

No!  God is with us in a greater way then He was with Joseph, because we are New Testament children of God.  Joseph was an Old Testament servant of God.  So today, see yourself the way God sees you: blessed and successful!

Confession: Today, I make a decision not to just believe my mind, but to believe God’s Word.  If His Word says that He is with me, then He is, and I am successful!
